When that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.” – I Corinthians 13:10When the “Perfect Man” comes, only then shall we see Him as He is and be made like Him. In the meantime, our faith is mixed with unbelief. Our love is mixed with selfishness. Our understanding is mixed […]

Not in Vain

Not in VainThe false gospel says that not everyone Christ died for will be raised to everlasting life. They say Christ died and was risen for everybody. But…most of the people He died for will not be raised to everlasting life. To which the Lord says; “If there be no resurrection from the dead then Christ is not risen: […]

Faith

FaithContrary to popular opinion, true faith is not the courage, strength, fortitude, and power of its possessor. True faith is what God gives to the poor and needy. True faith is the only hope the fearful, the weak, and the helpless have. True faith is the admission of one’s total inability. True faith is the acknowledgment of one’s total […]

Faith and Works

Faith and Works There are many who call themselves Christians who would say a man is not saved by works. They then turn around and make a work out of believing or look to their works as evidence of their salvation. If by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no […]

Believers are motivated by love

Posted by on August 20, 2018 at 11:54 am

“I defy anyone to find a solitary text of Scripture in the New Testament that uses the law to motivate, inspire, regulate, or even guide the believer. Believers are motivated by love, inspired by gratitude, regulated by grace, and guided by the Holy Spirit. The whole Word of God, the complete revelation of His will, […]

Sovereign or Superior Grace?

Posted by on July 23, 2018 at 10:25 am

Sovereign or Superior Grace? Many, I have found report to believe in Sovereign Grace. They speak of their love for a God who sovereignly elected a people, a Christ who sovereignly atoned for those particular people alone, and a Spirit who sovereignly and successfully regenerates the same chosen people. In their confessions, they boldly and […]

Prevenient Grace

Prevenient Grace What is Prevenient Grace? It is grace before grace, or that which is pre (before) convenient (purposed to an end)? In fact, it is everything, (yes, everything) a child of God experiences in life and thought prior to being effectually called to Christ by the Holy Spirit. Our Heavenly Father knows each one […]

When is a Sinner Saved?

Posted by on April 30, 2018 at 11:13 am

When is a Sinner Saved? Men have debated this questions for millenniums. Most of the controversy stems from man’s effort to reconcile the temporal to the eternal. Living in a world of time and space, he tries to define the when in this question as a single event! Scripture settles all controversies. So, what sayeth […]

Exclusive and Inclusive

Posted by on April 16, 2018 at 12:20 pm

Exclusive and Inclusive Greg Elmquist The gospel of God’s grace in Christ Jesus is both exclusive and inclusive. It is a double-edged sword. It cuts people out and it cuts people in. The exclusivity of God’s gospel will not allow a person to be saved while believing another gospel. One’s complete hope and trust must […]
